Information Security Media Group Announces FFIEC FAQ’s Webinar has announced it will be presenting a webinar on decoding the recent FAQ’s released by the FFIEC regarding their strong authentication guidance.

Princeton, NJ, September 06, 2006 --( Since its release on October 12, 2005, the FFEIC Guidance on Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment, has created a great deal of confusion, uncertainty, and speculation and raised many questions as to what is actually required to comply with the guidance. Many have interpreted the Guidance deadline of December 31, 2006 to only apply to the completion of a risk assessment, others understood the Guidance to require the implementation of multifactor authentication, and some are confused as to who and even what the Guidance applies to. 

In an effort to clarify the myriad of questions the Guidance evoked, the Agencies recently jointly developed and released a compilation of the most frequently asked questions received from financial institutions, examiners, and technology service providers concerning the October 12, 2005 Guidance. 

In order to help banks further deal with the guidance, and to address the frequently asked questions, will be presenting a webinar entitle “Decoding the FAQ’s on the FFIEC Guidance on Authentication in an Internet Banking Environment”. The webinar will be presented on two dates; September 21 and September 26, 2006. 

The webinar will be presented by Susan Orr, CISA, CISM, CRP – an ex-FDIC examiner. To register for the webinar, or for additional information, please visit:
